    New to the site; not sure why but most other forums I can post links to my pics directly to view... I'll have to read up on this sites FAQ's

    Anyway if anyone is going to CES in January 07 My ride will be in the Xenarc booth again with some updates and maybe a new indash monitor if the shipments arrive in time Please stop by and check it out...

    Here is a quick one I found... Also good news everyone looks like I will be able to give you all a sneak peak of the new Xenarc in dash flip up touch screen that I will be installing in my box for CES. If I can get it installed this weekend and show the pics to Xenarc get approval I will post up the pics

    Just wanted to get a quick post on the new Xenarc MDT–X7000, and my apologies for the picture quality.

    First just want to say thanks to Xenarc for giving me the opportunity to have my Scion xB in their booth #6619 at CES 2007 again; and working with me on this “Toy xBox” project.

    The MDT –X7000 prototype model could be the answer to a lot of issues that the majority of “carputer” peeps have and conveniences/functions that they need. I have installed several systems and my biggest issue was finding areas to but USB connections power on buttons, and all the external devices etc. The MDT –X7000 prototype has two USB ports right on the face, a PC/PWR, Menu buttons and a DVD/CD player AM/FM Radio.

    Since this is a prototype and no installation manual it appears to be a straight forward install it is a single DIN unit and the connections/inputs-outputs are as follows

    Power, Acc Power, Ground
    Touch Screen USB connection
    AM/FM antenna connection
    RCA Video 1&2 inputs, Video out
    Speaker Front & Rear connections for the Radio
    What appear to be DVD/CD maybe even Radio outputs for front/rear/center and sub
    SVGA/VGA connector and DVI connector
    Remote/Power Antenna connection
    Dimmer/Illumination connection
    Wired Remote Connection
    Wireless Remote

    I think that is it but as you can see from the pic a whole $@# load of wires. My conversations with the techs at Xenarc might get designs going for a hide-away module for all the connections - I/O’s; a bonus for all those tight stereo compartments.

    Before getting the MDT –X7000 Prototype I was sort of hesitant to go to a flip up because of the look etc but with all the features and room under the single din unit I could maybe do a card reader or more USB, I/O connections.

    One last thought is that would be a dream dash unit added feature is a Bluetooth connection for cell phone and mic that is built in. Maybe for us Double Din cars a duble din version and or a optional lower panel to fill the pocket space and provide extra I/O’s and card readers microphone etc. (just a thought for the upcoming cell phone laws in CA.)

    I look forward to CES 2007 and hope you can stop by and check out the great Xenarc products and my “Toy xBox” Scion xB.
